    a cruel gale whips my flesh with sands
    streams of finely grained memories
    tumble against my skin and burn it raw

    sand storm, sand storm, I am lost in you

    i open my mouth to speak my mind
    but more sand fills it and I cannot utter a syllable
    as memories fill my mouth and choke me
    as I am consumed by the suffocation of meant-to-be

    sand storm, sand storm...

    sand flushes my eyes with scratches
    and like a broken cd I begin to skip
    skip, skip
    skip from past to present, back and forth
    absorbed in flashing images of epileptic beauty
    neon lights of love, and in love

    sand storm, sand storm, You are choking me

    I can fight the sand storm, crawl through it
    with bleeding fingernails broken from fighting
    and mouth, and eyes, and heart, and mind
    full of heavy sand that trickles through me

    Human hourglass

    ticking, counting grains that pass until I am
    nothing but a pile of memories, with no future left
    to fall down through

    sand storm, sand storm... haunting sand storm..

    i would cherish every choking memory of us..

    I could fight, and leave my bloody paw prints here
    to be washed over with a sheen of more memories
    of other people, sad memories of my death perhaps
    or I can lay down
    In the dust and sorrow
    Of living in your memories that you cannot touch

    inhaling memory, and past tenses
    inhaling sand, and choking

    Sandstorm, sandstorm, I am drowned.
